SLOVAKIA fully supports the integration ambitions of Turkey into the European Union said both Prime Minister Robert Fico and President Ivan Gašparovič during a three-day official visit by Turkey's President Abdullah Gül to Slovakia between November 1 and 3, the SITA newswire reported.

“Turkey is very important from the viewpoint of the diversification of energy sources, mainly gas,” SITA quoted Fico as saying. “If the Nabucco project is realised, Slovakia might benefit from it thanks to being neighbours with Austria and Hungary.”

Other topics of the bilateral meeting between Fico and Gül included business relations, student exchanges, an agreement on mutual support and protection of investments. An agreement on war graves under which Turkey will be able to restore war graves in Slovakia was signed by both parties during Gül’s visit.

On November 2, Gül visited the University Library in Bratislava. On November 3, he met Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška. He also visited Comenius University and Devín Castle.
